Welcome to Sheridan Animal Hospital & Veterinary Specialists of WNY
To become a board certified surgeon, veterinarians must complete a minimum of an additional 4 years of intense, specialized training beyond veterinary school. These years are spent training specifically in advanced surgical procedures, cutting edge treatments, and patient care under the training of leading experts in the field. To complete their residency, surgeons must complete specific training requirements covering a wide spectrum of surgical cases in a heavy case-load environment. Her residency also included additional training in internal medicine, critical care, radiology, anesthesiology, pathology, and published research on surgical diseases. This is why a surgery residency position at Cornell University is arguably the most competitive in the world to obtain. Her research at Cornell focused on determining the optimal treatment for dogs with cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in their knees.
After completing residency training, surgical candidates spend months of intense study preparing for a grueling, multi-day exam. After passing this exam, Dr. Nelson became one of about only 1700 board certified veterinary surgeons worldwide.
Dr. Nelson joins Dr. Rene van Ee in being the only full-time, board-certified surgeons based in Western NY. They are both happy to have the opportunity to provide specialized surgical care locally for your pet. Additionally, Sheridan Animal Hospital is proud to have the only veterinary technician specialist in anesthesia, as well an overnight licensed veterinary technicians monitoring and caring for your pet throughout the night following surgery.
